Marbella City Council is running a subsidiary retaining wall in a building in the Pueblo Sueco urbanization of Las Chapas, at the intersection of the avenues of Brazil and Ecuador, to ensure the safety of pedestrians and drivers at the risk of collapse.
The Councilor for Works, Diego López, recalled that “initially we had to install scaffolding to prevent landslides in the area” and explained that later “before the inability to contact the owners, We undertook a long legal process to settle responsibilities and obtain the authorizations that would allow us to carry out the work.”
The mayor, who has been accompanied by the district councilor, Carlos Alcalá, has detailed that the construction, which will be completed within four months and will be undertaken in phases, it will be 60 meters long, 7 meters high and more than 526 meters of micropiles in the foundation phase, as well as a strip of lattice blocks.
“In no case will it imply any cost for the municipal coffers and for the citizens, since the infrastructure budget is will claim the owners of the house”, he pointed out, while thanking the “patience and understanding of the neighbors”. “We would have liked to build the new wall earlier but we had to wait for the relevant permits to be able to enter private property,” he added.
